Do you ever have to remind yourself of that?

I do.

I did just today … and yesterday and again last week.

I’ve had some great stuff happening in my world.  Fun stuff.  And I want to tell you ALL about the stuff, but I can’t.  Don’t you just hate it when someone does that?  Yep, me too.  Along with ALL the fun stuff, there has been some hard stuff.  Difficult stuff.

Today, was a not so great day.  It’s been a hard day filled with hard decisions and conversations.  A day of discussions that I wish never had to happen — but God is in control.  He’s not taking a break.  He’s not letting me handle this one solo.  He’s in control and He has this.

I have to remind myself that He is in control of the good — and of the not so good.  He is Lord and He is sovereign.  He is well aware of what’s happening around me.  He rejoices with me and for me and His heart breaks even more than mine.

Jesus Christ holds me together — in the good and the not so good.  He holds all of us together.

Some days I just need a reminder —

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. Col 1:17
